Looks like quality craftsmanship. Which 2 1/2 gal pressure pots has your base plate been "qualified" in?

Also, will these prices remain once your website is up and running? Expect any pricing adjustments once the campaign ends?

Thanks Whiskey! Love the name and may need some before the night is over!

The base has been used in HF pots, Binks pots and DeVilbiss pots, all 2.5 gallon. They are milled to within 1/16" of the inside diameter, so there is next to no wiggle room. I have them installed in my pots and ran a bead of clear silicone caulk around the top edge to help hold them down.

The price for the combo mold kits will remain $75. I won't be able to offer the same package deals that are on Kickstarter though. I'm taking a hit on pricing, especially on the top tier.

I expect to make the racks and pressure pot bases available if there is enough interest. Liquid Diamonds resin will for sure be available!

Thanks!!

My FB page just went live. You can also reach me there with any questions. I'll be posting updates on the website and new casting molds as they become available. Hopefully the website will go live in a few days. I just have a little bit of photography work left to do.

Thanks!!

How does this Kickstart work, you send out kits once campaign is done ?

In your directions you mention using a mold release agent. What is it and will you also offer it to customers?

Once the campaign ends it will fund and then I'm free to send out the "Rewards". I will be milling like a wild man over the next few weeks to try and get ahead of orders with a goal to ship everything right away.

Thanks!

There are several options on the market. I hadn't planned to carry mold release on my site but may look into it if it helps.

I recommend Ease Release 2831 for Alumilite and PR casts. It's manufactured by Mann and can be ordered from Reynolds Advanced Materials. It comes in a can and is easy to apply with a brush.

If you cast with Liquid Diamonds then I recommend Ease Release 200 by Mann. It's a silicone based agent that can be sprayed or brushed. Liquid Diamonds is VERY sticky so a silicone agent will do a better job with it than the other option.

Any release agent will definitely prolong the life of both the inserts and rubber plugs.

Just be sure to let your mold release dry before casting!! That will save you from a lot of headaches. Trust me, it's worth the few extra minutes.

Thanks!
